Organisation Profile:

Our Special Friends (OSF) helps individuals facing difficult times, perhaps through illness, relationship breakdown or bereavement, to continue to benefit from the companionship of animals and raises awareness of the benefits of the human-animal bond. Founded by Higham-based vet Belinda Johnston, OSF supports the vital relationships between vulnerable individuals and their animals, working alongside human and animal health practitioners and social care as needed. Its volunteers provide a range of services to individuals in need of support, including dog-walking and offer other forms of practical help to enable pets to stay with their owner. They also visit individuals unable to keep an animal with their own dogs, help with the introduction of a new pet and give support around pet bereavement.
